User Reviews

Excellent TV Show!!!
10 January 2004 | by amxenoiSee all my reviews

I only started watching this show and I love it. It has everything a cop show should have - excellent characters, suspense, drama, action and comedy. Rex steals the show - as well as most of the food! - in this outstanding German TV Series.
